Visiting Ben Nevis Ditillery

I was lucky enough recently to get a private tour around Ben Nevis distillery.

  
Ive been past many times and never had the time to pop in and look around so when a family friend thoughtfully arranged for me to get a tour I jumped at the chance.

The staff were knowledgable and very friendly and answered any and all questions we had.

  
The real hospitality began at the tasting bar when I sampled most of their blends (which were new to me and very pleasant) as well as their standard 10 year old single malt and their 15 year old. This was by far my favourite and is one of the best whiskies I have tried this year. I can see myself purchasing a bottle very soon. 

As for the others I didn’t take tasting notes (I was on holiday after all) but I do have two bottles here which I will post my notes and thoughts on in future.

Thanks to Colin and all of the staff at the distillery for making us feel so welcome.
